Linux News Today: GParted Live 0.26.1-5 Fixes VirtualBox BIOS Boot Issues, FAT32 Partition Support
Curtis Gedak and the GParted team have announced the release and general availability for download of the GParted Live 0.26.1-5 stable Live system for OS-independent disk partitioning operations.
Based on the latest Debian Sid software repository as of July 23, 2016, GParted Live 0.26.1-5 is here to patch a BIOS boot issue and missing window bars problem when running the Live system on the VirtualBox virtualization software, and improves support for FAT32 filesystems by patching the libparted library.
The patches version of libparted that’s been included in the GParted Live 0.26.1-5 stable release should fix some crashes that occurred during checking of FAT32 filesystems, and make sure that resized FAT32 partitions are now being correctly recognized by the Microsoft Windows operating system.
“This release fixes boot and window bar issues when used on VirtualBox. Also included are patches for libparted for FAT file system operations,” says Curtis Gedak. “This release of GParted Live has been successfully tested on VirtualBox, VMware, BIOS, UEFI, and physical computers with AMD/ATI, NVidia, and Intel graphics.”
GParted Live 0.26.1-5 is now available for download from our website as Live ISO images supporting 32-bit PAE, 32-bit non-PAE, and 64-bit hardware architectures. The ISOs are all writeable on both USB flash drives and CD discs. GParted Live can be used independent of a computer operating system to partition disk drives or any type and size.
